My name is Tim and I like to think of myself as a car enthusiast. I have at least some interest in almost all that is out there. I like the old and new vehicles. I'm currently restoring a 1951 Ford F1 pickup that I love the looks and styling on. I also daily drive a 2004 Toyota Prius that I love the technolgy of. Other than that, I also have a few other vehicles I tinker with including a couple motorcyles.
I'm looking forward to the Mirage as its kind of a throw back to my first vehicle, a Toyota Tercel. Bare bones transportation that was plenty of fun and easy on the wallet. There really hasn't been a great example of that kind of car in the US for a while IMO. All the vehicles out there have gained hundreds of pounds and grown in size.
